Part of the fun of the Alcove Swing was the manky old rope... You never quite knew if you'd be the unlucky one.

Not going to search but I'm pretty sure there were contradictions written to this claim too. Pretty sure it went something like It's not my land, I didn't close it...

Apparently it was to slow to get you heart rate up without being dangerous.

I'm setting up the first TZ rope swing this weekend. Anyone is welcome to use it - forewarning though, I'll be using a core shot rope that I found fixed on the Death Slabs approach to Half Dome a few years ago. But don't worry, there are still three strands of core totally intact and the sheath of the rope is white and crisp so I'm guessing that means it's pretty new.

The only bummer is the TZ rope swing is so tiny that it will not be exciting at all. So on second thought, if you don't have something relevant to say to this conversation, why don't you start your own thread. WTF.

DUDE - Suggestion: Go with the flow! Else your thread would be buried below the Kent/AG crap with no responses.

1) You GOT input.

2) It's a small website, not rc.com or supertopo.

3) I don't think people have all that much difficulty in figuring out which posts pertain to your topic and which go elsewhere. If you are seriously "WTF'ing" the posts...I suspect you don't spend much time online. What the hell ya DOING? CLIMBING???!!!

If you don't like how your thread was hijacked, why don't you start a new thread to discuss what you want? But there really isn't a whole lot more to say about rope swing amusement ride stunts at the Gunks.
